 Cameron Dunlap

Cameron Dunlap began his investing career back in 1993. His very first deal was a rehab project and he walked away with $12,000 in his pocket. Although it took nearly 16 weeks to complete, he's never looked back and continues to invest in real estate today. He knew from that experience that this would be his passion.

After only a few years in the business, Cameron Dunlap had done more deals than most people do in a lifetime. He had amassed millions and soon people were asking him for advice on how he was doing it. He was invited on stage by one his close mentors to share his story and his experience with a few students. His down-to-earth personality and get things done attitude resonated with the audience and soon he realized how much of an impact he had on people.

- Cameron Dunlap Real Estate Investor

In 1995, he started speaking and teaching individuals how to properly invest in real estate. To this day, Cameron Dunlap speaks to real estate investors and clubs across the country. As an active real estate investor, Cameron understands the challenges his students face on a daily basis. The real estate market changes every day, so Cam is constantly finding ways to overcome the challenges most investors have.

One of those challenges was finding properties. This can be very time consuming. He developed a system that attracts, manages and trains bird dogs to find the right kinds of properties so that investors can focus their time of other real estate related activities. Soon after, he also came out with a funding program that allows students to use his money for quick flips all because it's become so hard to get a loan.

Another amazing tool that Cameron Dunlap has created is a cash buyer system. Each month this system compiles a list of all the cash buyers throughout the nation who have bought a property with CASH. This is an amazing data feed because it allows investors to seek out cash buyers for their real estate deals. He also has a private lender data feed that does basically the same thing but with private lenders nationwide.

  Wendy Patton

How Wendy Got Started in Real Estate Investing

At the age of 21, Wendy started investing in real estate. Like most young adults she was single, broke, thinking "corporate America" was her only future. She graduated from college, was hired for that corporate America "dream job", but was $20,000 in debt. She found real estate investing and realized that Corporate America wasn't the golden path to what she wanted.

When Wendy began investing in real estate, she didn't fully understand her financing options, so she started purchasing real estate investment properties on her credit cards.

Now let's invite Wendy to share the rest of her real estate investing story:

"At that time I didn't know of any better way to invest. I did not have the assistance or availability of coaches and instructors. I wish I knew then, what I know now about investing in real estate and creative seller financing.

By the time I was in my early twenties, I had more than $200,000 on my credit cards! I then got married, had twins and found myself to be a single mother, all within a short time span. Over the next few years I accumulated more properties while working full-time in the corporate world. Imagine how happy my young twins were to be able to view hundreds of real estate properties with me

I needed to make a living, and make it fast to pay off the credit card debt I had accumulated. I came to specialize in creative seller financing techniques like: lease options, subject tos, land contracts and seller financing. So why these techniques?

Because like many of you, I didn't have the money or the credit I needed to buy in a conventional way. Now, with the lending industry the way that it is, most real estate investors can't buy properties without being creative. These techniques are crucial for today's real estate investor.

I enjoy teaching and sharing with audiences all over the US, and recently in the UK, and have taught tens of thousands on how to invest in real estate with little or no money out of their pocket. Real estate investing is my passion, and I love helping others to achieve financial freedom through property."

Wendy has been in HGTV "My House is Worth What?", and is the author of 4 books in the US and 1 in the UK (www.Lease Options Made Simple.co.uk) on creative seller financing.

 Lindsey Jean

The Making of Lindsey Jean

Lindsey Jean is the voice for Entrepreneurial Women.  As the founder and partner to numerous successful business ventures, she is devoted to empowering entrepreneurs from all around the world.

“I Failed Forward Fast”

In Lindsey’s own words, “From as far back as I can remember, I never seemed to do anything right.  It seemed as if everything I did I failed at.  I was diagnosed with ADHD at 5 years old and was labeled ‘a problem’; although many people have ADD or ADHD, my parents had a difficult time dealing with me.  My entire childhood I recall being told that I was ’difficult to be around‘, or that people ’needed a break from me‘. There were even times when my mouth was duct taped shut.  I really never thought I would have any level of success.

The constant comparison from her parents to her seemingly perfect sister left her feeling rejected from society until she found a connection with animals, specifically horses.  For the first time, she found something she was good at!  Her parents lack of finances motivated Lindsey to get a job at 13 years old so she could pursue her horse passion.

Working at such a young age set the foundation for Lindsey’s drive, desire and work ethic for success.  She quickly worked her way up the ranks, and at only 17 years old she was a nationally recognized trainer with multiple National titles.  Her decision to get married and start a family led her out of horses in into the business world.

“I was Unemployable”

“Training horses really spoiled me, I worked my own days and hours, I had an assistant at, I was the boss all at a very young age.  Leaving horses for the corporate world was a shock, and it became pretty obvious that I wasn’t really employable.  I fought with every boss because I thought they were missing opportunities or running operations inefficiently.  I didn’t like being told what to do, when to do it and I thought I should be paid a lot more.  Every job I quit within a few months of starting, one place I only lasted 3 days.”

Frustrated with a job, Lindsey jumped into being an entrepreneur with both feet, failure was not an option.  She started two businesses: one in construction and one in real estate. She quickly discovered what did and did not work as both businesses were her guinea pigs for wealth strategies.  It was a double dose of everything; when something worked it was like she hit the jackpot, when it didn’t, she took a double hit.

Lindsey’s first ‘a-ha moment’ happened when the economy shifted and the ‘real estate bubble burst’.  The economy was imploding, and she knew she needed to differentiate herself from the competition.  Lindsey branded and marketed both companies to a specific niche—Extremely Wealthy.

People were skeptical, others believed she was taking too great a risk because they made up less than 1% of the population.  But, she knew the wealthy would be able to survive an economic collapse better than anyone else.  She also knew that most people wanted “the best” and if she positioned herself with the ‘A Players’ everyone trying to ‘keep up with the Jones’s’ would hire her too.  Her instincts were right again.

 Jeff Kaller

Jeff Kaller was born in Brazil as a Missionary kid, graduated from Appalachian State University as a Business major with a degree in Resort and Hotel Management. After 15 years as a chef in the Caribbean and southeastern United States he decided to trade in the excruciatingly long restaurant hours for a career in Real Estate. ­is came after becoming enamored with the effects of a personal foreclosure prior to his investing career. ­The personal foreclosure sent him on a mission to save over 1 Million Families from foreclosure by short-selling hundreds of pre-foreclosure residential properties. ­e true testament to this can be found in his best selling book “Secrets to Short Sale Success”, which gained him notoriety as the Country’s Leading Authority in Short Sales from names such as Donald Trump. Jeff and his team has collectively negotiated over One Billion Dollars in Short Sales with defaulted residential properties. He has spent 15 ½ years of his life fully dedicated to preforeclosure properties and has developed techniques used in discounting that have permanently changed the way residential short sales are created in this country.

Currently Jeff has built an expansive network and internal team to negotiate pre-foreclosure properties on a national basis. He resides in St. Augustine, Florida, with his daughter Allie and wife Sofia, who is known in the real estate circles as “Mrs. Preforeclosure”.

 Duncan Wierman

He became an expert in finding motivated sellers, hungry buyers, and private lenders through the Internet.Duncanwanted systems that meant… He could stop taking to UNMOTIVATED sellers. . Instead, the real motivated sellers now call him; He wanted to stop knocking on doors of people in pre-foreclosure. He didn’t have to compete head-to-head with other investors that had the same pre-foreclosure lists; Duncan’s systems now set him apart from the competition and he dominates his foreclosure market; His system provides instant credibility. Plus, all his follow up is automatic so he could capture information, prescreen , AND negotiate with the seller. Now callers are “half sold” even before Duncan ever speaks with them; Duncanwas no longer tied to the office, because his “Virtual Office” systems work from any web connection; He saved hundreds of thousands of dollars each year in real estate agent commissions, because his systems now do that work for him; and now he can sell a house in as little as 2 hours Duncansystems’ finds people with money to give him to do real estate deals.

Duncan also has some unique marketing methods to allow people to start getting checks in as little as 2 weeks from implementation.In short, Duncan lives that dream of automating the business to such a degree that his time is spent where it should be: Making offers. He uses his cutting edge of technology that outwits and outplays his competition!
